Building for the Splunk Platform

Modular inputs - Why are Data Inputs not showing?

New Member

I have followed instructions in

Further I am following the You Tube tutorial

I have installed Splunk Enterprise on my computer. It is Windows 10.

I created a folder with the required structures. 

In it is the inputs.conf.spec with the following:

api_key = <value>
lang = <value>
page_number = <value>
region = <value>

I have a file in the bin directory. 

When I start up Splunk, the app "TMDB Input" is there.

But when I go to Settings->Data Input, the input for my app is not present. 

I have looked at the log files in "C:\Program Files\Splunk\var\log\splunk" but I cannot find anything that helps me to find the problem.  I have searched for ERRORS and any reference to my tmdb_input app in the logs. But nothing helps.

Does anyone have any insight as to how I might troubleshoot the failure to see the "TMDB Input" in  Settings->Data Input?
